Traction Room has delivered a number of projects requiring pre-cast concrete installation. Working with our JV partners, we have the capability to manoeuvre large pre-cast units into place. Our highly capable teams possess the skill and application required to prepare supporting structures to the tight tolerances associated with pre-cast work and we have delivered a number of high profile pre-cast projects successfully.
Southern Corridor Noise and Retaining Walls
Traction Room entered a Joint Venture with Gameon2 Contractors to construct 600m of concrete noise and retaining walls as part of the SH1 Southern Corridor improvement project, between Takanini and Papakura.
The walls consisted of steel columns embedded in reinforced concrete piles, with pre-cast concrete panels placed in between. We performed the work with twice the rate of production of the other contractor on site building noise walls at the time.
A section of the works was directly below 220kV overhead cables and required a complex installation methodology as panels could not always be slid from the top down, but needed to be installed from the side and held while each post was bolted in place.
We completed the work on time and defect free. Traction Room took ownership of the contract management, site management and all concrete and structural steel work.
